Department of Management and Organization
I am a PhD candidate in Business Administration and appointed at the Center for Responsible Leadership (CRL).
My research focus is on: a) the structural barriers faced by highly skilled migrants amidst organizational efforts to include, and b) managers ability to construct inclusive narratives for an increasingly diverse workforce.
In my dissertation, I conducted a 18-month ethnography to study the forms of domination that emerge in an inclusive organization. Using a labor inclusion program targeting highly skilled migrants, I investigated how migrants and managers actively negotiate the terms of inclusion. My findings propose to see organizational inclusion as a negotiation of conditions.
Recently, I held a visiting researcher position at Copenhagen Business School (CBS). I hold an MPhil in public policy (Central European University, Budapest), MA in political science, and a BA in sociology. I have a dual Peruvian and Spanish citizenship.
